Answer

The DGAC found that consuming three to five cups of coffee per day can be part of a healthy diet and that data to date suggest that coffee reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus and CVD. This amounts to approximately 400 mg of caffeine per day.  However, the consumption of added sugar, fatty milk, or rich creams with the coffee is not advised.
